Celebration Sunday & Picnic: June 12th

This Sunday is Celebration Sunday! Join us for worship as we celebrate some of the joys of this past program year together. We will have some special music, present bibles to our church school students, and give thanks for everyone’s good work this past year. Following worship, a picnic lunch will be provided.

Sundaes on Sunday is Back: June 19th and June 26th

Sundaes on Sunday returns this summer for a limited time only on June 19th and 26th from 5:30-7 at the church. Sundaes are $3. I’ve attached the flyer for more details. Sundaes on Sunday is a wonderful time for fellowship and some great homemade salted caramel sauce and hot fudge!

Strawberry Festival: Thank You!

Thank you to everyone who volunteered and who bought strawberry shortcake this past Sunday! It was a lovely evening with lovely people. I’ve attached some pictures mostly by Janine SW. And a special thank you to Janine for being our festival chair this year! We do have some cream, biscuits, and strawberries left, and those will be available for purchase this Sunday.

Once we’ve finished adding everything up and subtracting out our costs, we’ll let everyone know what we made. Thank you again to everyone!

Congratulations to Our New Members!

Congratulations to Thomas, Emma, and Emily on joining the church this past Pentecost Sunday. I’ve attached some photos from the service that Valerie B shared. Thank you to the deacons and other volunteers who helped with classes this past program year!

General Comments

 If any of you have pictures from Strawberry Festival or Pentecost worship to share, please send them along!

As this Sunday, in addition to being Celebration Sunday, is Trinity Sunday, I wanted to share this Trinity prayer/poem by David Adam with all of you:

“The Trinity
Protecting me
The Father be
Over me
The Saviour be
Under me
The Spirit be
About me
The Holy Three
Defending me
As evening comes
Bless my home
Holy Three
Watching me
As shadows fall
Hear my call
Sacred Three
Encircle me
So may it be
Amen to Thee
Holy Three
About me”

Peace,

Pastor Katrina
